Do Something Good for Your Neighbor

At Holy Trinity, our faith and Ignatian tradition call us to build a more just world that upholds dignity, equality and access to social and economic opportunity for all. During this unprecedented time, the needs of our local and international community continue.  We have provided ongoing opportunities from our social justice volunteers and partners.  To explore additional opportunities for individuals and families, please refer to our 2021 Fall Volunteer Guide.

8th Grade Students Address Period Poverty

Period poverty is a global issue affecting people who cannot get access to period products, whether for financial reasons or otherwise. Many young women around the world still don’t have access to basic sanitary products, and it’s hindering their education and their future. Ava B., Ava M., Tess, Ana and Sofia are 8th grade students at Holy Trinity School who wanted to address the pink tax and period poverty. Partnering with female-owned, Viv, a company focused on eco-friendly menstrual products, these students are hoping to collect pads for female students at St. Raymond's School in Haiti. They are hosting a period poverty drive (pads only please) through March 5. Their partner, Viv, has created boxed options to make it easy. All online purchases will be shipped to Holy Trinity so the girls may pack the shipping barrels for Haiti. Additional donations (again pads only please) may be dropped off at the Upper School or the parish center.

SOME Snack Bags Continue in 2022

We are shy of collecting 25,000 snack bags since May 2020! The next snack bag collection date is January 22. We will continue to collect new and gently used coats, new socks and new underwear at each collection.
